These are 11 of the Oldest Things in the World | TIME.com

Wow, it really makes you realise that your life truly is a vapour when there are many trees and plants that dramatically outlive you. Now this could be rather depressing:

It is better to spend more time at funerals than at festivals. For you are going to die and you should think about it while there is still time . Ecclesiastes 7:2

Or it could drive us to do right, and seve God, for time is short:

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. James 4:13-17

As Paul would say:

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, redeeming/making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:15-17

And as Solomon concluded:

Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil Eclesiasties 12:13-14
